The Magnolia Plantation is probably the most well known plantation in Charleston. While the house was fine to get an idea of plantation life (nothing special compared to others I’ve seen in the south), the gardens here are the real draw. They are a step above the rest. There are a series of beautiful bridges interspersed throughout the meandering garden paths and a plethora of flowers and wildlife to take in. I just love how the bridges reflect off of the surrounding water like glass in the afternoon sunlight–no edits required.
